I'll head up for 11.30 or so and hope for some breeze before it goes southerly.

Best wishes to all for the New Year. Weather poor for gliding  over the holidays but coming Monday looks possible. I plan to fly from Kilakee from noon or so if anyone is tempted.

Yes. Not at all clear what the weather will do.  Cloud base could be the issue. I plan to try for Saturday am.

Sorry Ralph. I'm on duty here over the weekend and will not be able to get away. Looks like there might be some good conditions. Have fun.

Also had some great flying today at Kilakee but earlier in the afternoon. Very little wind but 25C and the air was thick and full of thermals. Rode some to great height. The PureRes was in its element!

Wonderful Fred.  So many interesting models. Thanks for posting.

Slope Soaring / Rock'X from RS-aero

Wind from the SW and on the slope at Kilakee yesterday for a change! First flight of the Rock'X from RS-aero - flew pretty well.

Turns out the cloud rolled back and although the wind remained very light and gradually went more easterly during the day, there was some pleasant flying with our F3RES models.  Small group - just four pilots - but very nice to see everyone.

Four different F3RES models here - a Slite V2, Andreas, Pures and X-Res! We really should fly them off the line sometime, but great models on the slope on a very light day like today.

Thanks Ralph for organising the club /MACI subscription again.  Much appreciated.

Not a great deal of flying at Kilakee for me so far this year - January was quite good.  Lots of gales in February and winds from east in March. Wind turned westerly today and managed to get out this morning for some good flying.

Can't make Mt Leinster next weekend as I'm working.

 Rock'X also came from Zeller.  See

It's more of a slope machine than F3RES - probably 2-300 g heavier than the Slite. Interesting construction - uses quite a bit of very thin ply sheeting on the wing and tailplane.

The Slite V2 - best kit I have seen yet.
